 Why did you stop? If you have breastfed more than one then tell us about each experience.

I stopped because we were having food allergy issues. I ebf for over five months but she was always sick even after I changed my diet. After I tried goat milk she refused breastmilk and would only drink goat milk. So I stopped.

Well, I THINK my daughter is finished now.  SHe will be 4 yrs old in just under 6 weeks.  I stopped with her because I am pregnant with my 3rd, nursing my 2nd (only 20 months), and didn't want to tri-andem nurse.  We weaned slowly and she is basically fine with it.  She tried to nurse on June 1 but couldn't get milk so I think she is done.  I hope my 2nd gets to at least age 2, I will encourage it a lot until that point then let him do what he will do.  Same iwth my next one (due in Nov).  My minimum is 2 yrs nad then whatever the child wants mostly.

I'm still EBF my 6 month old but I had a dream last night that I had sextuplets and was desperately trying to breastfeed them all. Interesting lol

My daughter made it 13 months... By then she was only nursing at night, so it was purely a comfort thing and we just kinda weaned without even attempting to

 With my son...he nursed 18 months. I night weaned him at 14 months and got pregnant when he was 16 months. My boobs burned so bad that it killed me everytime he nursed so I weaned him. It was very easy!

My daughter is 7 months. We are going on a cruise when she is 18 months. I think I will wean her by then. My original plan was to let her self wean but I have since changed my mind. I really want to go on this cruise. I feel selfish but I also feel I very much deserve this.
